    You know how I always say “make your wedding YOU?” Well, this couple loves entertaining and throwing dinner parties so much they decided to literally make their wedding one big dinner party and hosted it at their own home. I super love that! And once you see the decor and personal touches and the bride’s fabulous style, you’ll super love it too.

    What was the inspiration behind your wedding day?

    My husband, Glen, and I wanted to get married at our home. We have a beautiful space and it is the place that is most dear to our hearts. We love entertaining and being surrounded with friends and family.

    Your favorite moment of or memory from the day?

    Walking out to a soft glowing dinner table with all of our family and friends laughing, enjoying the party to an acoustic musician. It was our vision coming to life.

     How did you make your wedding you?

    For our wedding day, we wanted our guests to be a part of our biggest dinner party ever, feel welcome and comfortable, and most importantly get to know each other.

     Our wedding started with an extended cocktail hour, followed by the ceremony, dinner at a singular long dinner table, ending with desserts, cocktails, and dancing. The cocktail hour was in the entry patio featuring a playlist of Glen’s favorite artist, Bruce Springsteen, and signature cocktails courtesy of our friends at Hawthorne & Julep in Kansas City, MO. The dinner party was in our yard with a long table and passed buffet-style dining with intimate lighting and an amazing acoustic guitarist, Glenn Nowak. Post dinner party, we had desserts and a whiskey bar by the pool, next to a DJ-hosted dance floor.

    I love how personalized this wedding is to the couple – from the venue to the playlist to the cocktails. And it was absolutely beautiful, right? I’m a huge fan of the “one long reception table.” And the bride’s pouf accessory – I *wish* I had worn a fabulous pouf on my wedding day. It’s so fun! Congrats to Elizabeth & Glen!

    •  Apparently you wanted to sleep in your own room as well, because last night your brothers bunked up and you got the nursery all to yourself and slept like a champ. 7:30-3:30, quick feeding, then up at 6:30. Which means I got my first real night's sleep in 7 months. Encore encore!!!  #quincyrhys quincysmilestones  I can hardly believe Quincy was ever this tiny. And now he's 7 months tomorrow. Since we are out of the infant baby gear/clothing phase, I'm selling it all at a deep discount now at @ohlovelydaysale (including this playmat!) and more this weekend if you are local. See the flyer a few posts back and head to my sale feed. Tag your expecting friends or the mom's of new babes that are in So Cal! #OLDsamplesale
       7 months old today, but momma won't be taking your 7 month photo today (probably not tomorrow either) because I'm so tired from your sleeping more like a 7 week old than a 7 month old. Did you not get the 3rd baby memo? If you don't give me more sleep soon I'm going to pull a Lindsay Lohan and check myself into a nice facility due to my "exhaustion" (except in my case it really will be exhaustion). Then who will you wake up all night, huh? So can you try and just wake me up once a night? Instead of 3? Deal? DEAL!!!? #seriouslysotired #quincyrhys  Mama said there'd be days like this... Just not 200 of them in a row  good thing the company's cute. Also, currently loving this playmat from @lollalandusa - it's big and soft and cleans easily. And now we can practice sitting without worrying about head bumps when he falls over  #quincyrhys #OLDfavefinds
